This drug-fueled rock ‘n roll joyride follows two New York City slackers on a surreal, life-altering road trip. Asthmatic artist Gus (Benedict Samuel) has hit bottom. With nothing to lose, he steals a Rolls Royce in an attempt to win over his tattoo artist crush, Ruby (Krysten Ritter). The pair embarks on a wayward journey that takes them everywhere from a neo-hippie commune to the bedside of Gus’ gravely ill mother as they come to terms with their feelings for one another. Featuring surprising cameos from Nick Nolte, Rosanna Arquette, and punk icon Iggy Pop, Asthma captures the highs and lows of being young, lost, and in love.
